Random Post Election Thoughts

Random thoughts I've had since the election.

Next time, if you want to save time and find out who won the election well before any network is airing it, pay attention to the talking heads from late afternoon on.  Sean Hannity goes on the air at three, and he was at first optimistic, then after he became privy to the exit polling data, he became desperate sounding.   Fox News, or Faux News as the liberals who never watch it, call it, was like a wake.  CNN was buoyant.  I started the day thinking a Romney win, but by six  it was dawning on me.

I've noticed this about Hannity years ago,  every four years I have a reason to listen to Hannity, and that is to determine, as soon as possible, how the night is going to go.

The talk about how the GOP needs to evaluate who they are is indeed relevant.  I dropped them like a bad habit, perhaps the only bad habit I ever dropped.  So no, Obama's win isn't shattering for me.  Long ago I realized my way of thinking isn't represented often in Presidential elections.  I'm O.K. with that,  not thrilled, but I'm O.K.

I had thoughts once, that coincided with a party, but not anymore.  I am a minority, I am the 3%.  Only I was hoping for at least 5%.

I was hoping for a Romney win, if only to enjoy the liberals complaining again.  They do it so well.  Realized that they blamed a hurricane on a President.  A hurricane!  When the conservatives tried to do that this year, it was like watching stand-ins on a Broadway hit.   One day maybe, but not that good right now.

Which brings me to the President.  One day maybe, but not that good right now.  But it may as well be him,  he's already there, and we've put difficult decisions off long enough.  Now with a second term, Obama is either going to accomplish something or not.  It's that simple.  Do something, or don't do something Mr. President.

It's going to be interesting.  It has to be, or you just aren't paying attention.  Serious problems confront us.  I wish him well.
